 yesterday  i  gone  to  Aqua  Park  in  Kolathur,  they  have  discus  of  3"  -3.5"  size.  blue  diamond,  turquise,  red  melon  are  there  with  some  in  pepper  dots  and  some  with  fin  problem.  Since  I  should  not  disclose  the  amount  here  exactly,  but  i  hope  i  can  mark  the  digits  Smile  it  was  Rs.  xxxx  ;  when  i  asked  why  it  is  so  costly,  the  guy  said  it  is  imported  from  Singapore  Wink  (as  usual).
 
 Then  i  visited  Aqua  forrest  (cant  remember)  shop  in  Kolathur;  they  have  3"  -  4"  Discus  of  good  quality  but  that  cost  Rs.Xxxx  each  piece.  Same  answer  -  imported  from  Singapore  ;)
 
   ROFL  
 
 This  really  makes  me  to  think  as  the  LFS  guys  who  sell  Discus  in  Kolathur  thinks  people  are  fools  to  buy  whatever  cost  they  say.  Being  a  person  pays  tax  for  every  penny  i  earn,  its  hard  to  know  the  fact  that  they  pay  nothing  except  the  loses  they  incur  during  the  shipment  of  stocks.  But  the  cost  they  fix  are  in  5  folds  of  normal  price..  seems  greedy..  
 
 Adesh  /  moderators:-  Sorry  if  i  have  mentioned  the  amount  in  digits.  but  i  have  to  convey  the  facts  in  Chennai  to  others

 Hi  Jaisankar,
 
 
 WELCOME  TO  IAH.
 
 
 After  reading  u  r  experience  I  am  really  feeling  bad  and  also  I  can't  help  u  from  kolkata.  
 
 Here  I  also  talk  with  few  people  but  problem  is  that  they  are  not  ready  to  send  6-8  Discus  to  Chennai  and  cost  also  become  high.  As  you  mentioned  "3"  -3.5"  size.  blue  diamond,  turquise,  red  melon"  should  be  in  xxx/  (3  digit)  and  these  strains  are  very  much  available  in  Mumbai.  No  need  to  "IMPORT".
 
 In  kolkata  they  cost  also  Rs.  xxx/  each.
 
 Anyway  wait....hope  you  will  get  u  r  Discus.  
 
 "IF  THERE  IS  A  PROBLEM,  THERE  IS  A  SOLUTION"
 
 Also  I  am  bit  surprisie  there  is  not  much  Discus  lover  in  Chennai  !!  Surprised  
 
 
 Thx
 
 Abhi

 Jaisankar,
 
 Me  too  surprised  to  see  those  prices  for  the  discus  of  that  size  and  on  top  of  that  damaged  fins  and  a  lot  of  peppering   Shocked  
 
 I've  always  had  bad  experiences  when  dealing  with  LFS  for  discus.  You  get  to  hear  a  lot  of  vague  comments  abt  why  these  discus  are  costly  and  how  the  quality  is  superior.  I  would  suggest  to  keep  looking  for  a  breeder  nearby  your  area  or  a  breeder  who  can  ship  to  your  place  with  good  deal.
 
 All  d  best.

 Some  LFS  is  Mumbai  also  sell  locally  bred  discus  with  "Imported"  tag.
 If  you  are  genuinely  interested  in  discus  in  Chennai,  you  can  get  in  touch  with  Beta.  Experienced  eyes  can  immediately  judge  the  quality  of  discus,  if  they  are  truly  imported  or  local  bred.
 Some  LFS  do  import  discus  which  are  highly  priced,  first  time  I  saw  big  lot  of  Bulldog  discus  at  LFS  place  only  some  5  years  back.  So  you  never  know,  what  you  are  going  to  get  with  LFS.

 Jai,
 
 I  believe  both  of  us  are  sailing  towards  the  same  shore....  I  too  had  the  same  exeperience  when  I  visited  Kolathur  a  month  back.   Shocked  
 
 After  getting  help  from  local  friends  in  Chennai,  I  happend  to  Visit  a  place  in  South  Chennai  [  I  don't  recollect  the  name  of  this  place  ,  will  share  during  the  next  post  ]
 
 Unfortunately  they  didn't  had  any  stock  in  hand  to  sell,  But  I  checked  the  prizes  and  it  seems  to  be  very  attractive   Thumbs Up  
 
 When  I  checked  last  week  about  the  availabity,  it  seems  by  15th  September  they  will  have  good  stock  for  sale.  Will  keep  you  posted  if  I  get  good  a  news  ,  in  the  mean  time  keep  me  posted  if  there  is  anything  from  your  side.
